Because we had heard this was a Chapel Hill institution I went with family for a casual dinner. We sat outside and really enjoyed the atmosphere created by the tall bamboo and waterfall. We started with the jalapeno and cheddar hush puppies served with cocktail sauce. They were cooked well and flavorful. Surprisingly, the cocktail sauce really was a good condiment for them. I had the red beans and rice with corn bread. It was very tasty once I mixed in the cheese and cilantro topping. My dinner companion was disappointed with the chicken and sausage soup and salad calling it just average and not up to the hype. The third dinner ordered was a custom burger with fries that was declared better than average. I had heard the service was amazing despite the moderate prices, but our server kept us waiting frequently and even forgot what I had ordered for dessert so had to come back to ask again --it was the chocolate souffle and yes, that was well worth the wait! Be sure to save room for it if you love chocolate. I don't think it lives up to all the hype, but it is a decent and relaxing place to eat. We will go again, especially when the weather allows for outside dining and we want to have a few drinks and take our time.
